Bears vs Saints channel, start time

The Bears vs Saints live stream is scheduled to start at 4:40 p.m. ET / 1:40 p.m. PT today, Sunday January 10.
It's on CBS.

The Bears vs Saints live stream is on, and it pits a Hall of Fame-bound quarterback against a QB trying to find his way. The Saints’ Drew Brees turns 42 next week. He’s won a Super Bowl, he’s right now leading a see-saw battle with Tom Brady for most passing yards in league history and he has his team back in the postseason for the fourth straight year. His legacy as one of the game’s all-time greatest is cemented.

On the other side of the field, Brees’ counterpart Sunday, Mitchell Trubisky, has not been as fortunate. The 26-year-old signal caller is looking for consistency in his career. The second overall pick in the 2017 draft was benched this season for Nick Foles in just the Bears’ NFL live stream of the season. However, after a hip injury sidelined Foles in week 10, Trubisky has retaken the starter’s reigns and helped the Bears to a win three-in-a-row in December to get into the playoffs.

Oddsmakers currently have the 8-8 Bears as a playoff worst 10.5-point underdog on the road against the 12-4 Saints.

The Saints’ defense allowed the 5th fewest points in the league this season, so Trubisky and the Bears will have their work cut out for them. On the other side of the football, Chicago could catch a break.

New Orleans star running back, Alvin Kamara could miss Sunday’s game with COVID. According to a report, Kamara was virtually connected to Saints practices this week.

This will be the second time these teams face each other this season. The Saints just squeaked by the Bears in Week 8. New Orleans kicker Wil Lutz hit a 35-yard field goal with less than two minutes to go to clinch the win at Soldier Field.

Bears vs Saints live streams in the US

In America, Bears vs Saints is going to be broadcast on local CBS affiliates, which are included on most cable TV packages and available on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV. The game starts at 4:40 p.m. ET / 1:40 p.m. PT Sunday January 10 on CBS.

Sling TV, our other favorite live TV service, won't be enough to help, as its array of NFL game-hosting networks — FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network — lacks CBS and NFL RedZone.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $45 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $59.99 per month.
